KANGAR (Bernama): A quarry manager of a foundation owned by the Perlis government and a broker are in remand for four days from Thursday (Jan 10) for alleged power abuse in connection with the purchase of two land lots, worth more than RM1.8 million, last year.
Magistrate Nurul Hafzan Ab Aziz issued the order against them following an application by the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC).
According to an MACC source, the two men, aged 53 and 51, were arrested at 5.40pm Wednesday when they went to give their statements.
The quarry manager was believed to have conspired with the broker in the purchase of the land in Mukim Kurong Anai, Kuala Perlis, without the approval of the foundation's board or directors, he said. – Bernama
